Painting The Village Red
My days of painting the town red in party dresses are long gone.
I live in a small village close to the coast.
It is the kind of place where you can't just "nip to the shops" as you always meet at least three people you know.
And it would be so rude to rush off.
Last night I got together with a group of friends I met around 14/15 years ago.
Most of us have children aged between 18 and 14 and we met through local toddler groups and our children's school.
I have spoken about them before here and here.
Life has thrown us all a few low ballers.
None of us have escaped.
But we try and get together as a group as often as we can - sadly this is about three times a year now.
We met for our Christmas Dinner at a local restaurant and chatted the night away.
When I looked round the table I felt so proud to be part of this group.
These women have played a significant role over the most challenging years.
I feel blessed to have them in my life.
